    I don't want to answer that question as it will reinforce your misconception.

    The integral of u^2 is meaningless.

    The integral of u^2 du is u^3/3.

    The du bit isn't just there to look pretty, it is as vital as putting your trousers on when you go to the shops.

    lol, nice analogy so I should just put u back in and that's all..
